District 9

Those creatures I'd seen in stills are CGI. Interest dropped to zero.

I think there's enough here to like.  You might consider giving this another go

Watched about 40 minutes of North by Northwest. I will definitely finish it sometime soon. I'm craving Jimmy Stewart and Cary Grant just doesn't cut it.
Grant >>>>Stewart

Especially in North by Northwest.

Princess Protection Program

FLY will kill me for this...

The adult acting is very bad and it's like what... and while I don't think Selena and Demi are that bad, they're not interesting to watch.  Plus, I keep seeing all of these things popping on the movie and that was distracting.  It took me away from something that could actually be slightly interesting but that didn't happen.

...Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire (toward the end) and HOLY CRAP! Barty Crouch Jr. was David Tennant!  I saw the whole movie in the theater when it came out and never noticed him.  I didn't think I'd ever seen him before he became the Doctor.

(For the record, I think this and #3 are the best Potter movies thus far, but I haven't seen 6 yet and don't hold out great hopes for it or 7, because books 5 thru 7 are just too damn huge to do very well).

6 is good on a craftsmanship level, the plot isn't great, and 7 will be two movies.
I actually consider a lot of movies to be life-changing! I take them to my heart and they melt into my personality.

An American Carol

I understand it was trying to display a conservative message but it went overboard.  It made liberals seem even dumber than they are but it makes the conservatives and country musicians look like idiots as well.  Plus, it's got a cameo from Bill O'Reilly and Paris Hilton?  I couldn't any more of it.  It's terrible and largely unfunny though Kelsey Grammer was OK as General Eisenhower.

I don't think 2 movies will help much because actually #7 seemed to be the most padded of the books.  There seemed to be an awful lot of depressed wandering around before things finally got going.

Escape From Alcatraz

Just kind of casually watching this on AMC right now. I really like it. Probably haven't seen the whole thing in a while though. This is one of those films that my dad introduced me to.

Christmas with the Kranks

Is this that bad, because it seems awful.
